On my '16....


1. It only tells me that my tire pressure is low, not which one, and not what he pressure is.


2. When replacing tires, you need to go to a tire store/dealer/garage to re-flash (re-link the replaced tire to the car).

It would be nice if there was the ability to do this ourselves.

For those who use winter tires, and have purchased a full-size spare wheel & tire.

(I have a 180mi commute and don't want the speed limitations of the doughnut if I get a flat)

Or you could do like some of us do when that stupid light stay's on because a battery in a sensor has died. Put a piece of black tape over the light.


I don't know how I survived driving from 1970 until that TPMS came out, without that system...I guys us old folks are lucky to be alive...

My '18 has actual pressures for each wheel, no more playing marco polo to find which one is low. Although my old A5 that I had was sensorless, and didn't turn off, it just came on when it detected an imbalance and you had to test them all and "reset" the system. Many, many false alarms. At least when the tpms goes off on the Subaru's it's typically valid.
